Black Water Carved Tankard
Holds Approx. 16 fl oz.
Approx. 5” x 4 ¼”w x 4 ¾” d
This Porcelain Tankard is glazed with an Ice Blue Celadon, decorated with Black underglaze and dripped with hot paraffin wax. It is then slowly wiped with a wet sponge leaving behind a black raised surface where the wax touched the pot. This technique is known as “water carving” or “water etching.” Every Tankard is a little different in design depending on where the wax falls, making it truly one of a kind.
This drinking vessel is great for those who love large quantities of coffee, tea, or a nice chilled drink.
The handle has porcelain slip dots at the top, which gives it a delightful tactile feel under your thumb. You will want to hold and rub your tankard handle while drinking tea or coffee and contemplate your day.
